Mrs. Carla Torrez
About: I am happily married for just over 30 years and have two amazing adult children. My daughter and I enjoy running, we have done several 5k, 10k and ½ marathons, working on doing a marathon soon. I also enjoy hiking, last April/May I hiked the Camino De Santiago, over 588 miles across the top of Spain. My other interest are, traveling, golfing, baking and a fan of the LA Kings. I enjoy working with the students in the library and encouraging them to read and try new genres. In the past few years I have implemented the 40 Book Challenge and am amazed at the students who push themselves to reach reading levels they never thought they could.
How long you have been teaching: I have been a librarian for 15 years. I started with LAUSD as a teachers-aid, office assistant and finally move to the librarian position. I have a degree from LA Mission College in Interdisciplinary Studies.
How long have you been at Ribét: 2013
Your favorite part about Ribét: My favorite part of working at Ribét is the small classes and the friendly students.
